Pretty good deal
Pros: It is super easy to set up. It's cheap and came with a free 1 TB hard drive offered as a combo deal. I can plug in all the portable hard drives I have and use them for external storage.
Cons: I have a mac and I haven't fully got it to work right. I did get time machine to work after I fiddled with it. No cons for window machines!
Overall Review: So far it's been great. Definitely recommend it. You just can't beat the price.
Two Chips Two Bad
Cons: First one I got would not format in the camera!! Then wouldn't work on the computer. RMA'ed that one. Second one worked for a little bit, then it wouldn't record past a few minutes again on my canon HF S10 so I sent it back for a refund..
Overall Review: Do no buy this!!!
So Far, So Good
Pros: So far I burned 48, and all 48 burned successfully. This is the second time I purchased these, and so far they've been great.
Cons: None at the moment
Overall Review: Time will tell how long they last. I have been backing up my movie collection as it is getting rather large. I only burn at the listed speed, which is 6x, I also have my blu ray burner updated to the latest firmware. They just work.
So Far, So Good
Pros: So far I've burned 5 discs and all five have been successful. I have been backing up my video collection to blu ray as it is getting rather large and it's nice to have them on a format that is not mechanical.
Cons: Non yet. (Knock on wood)
Overall Review: First one I burned with Windows 8.1 from file explorer, worked okay. Windows reads 45.1 GB available or something like that. But it burned good(I assume it is how windows defines a byte). Last few I have been burning with image burn. I can get just a little more in there. This is my burner "Pioneer Black 15X BD-R 2X BD-RE 16X DVD+R 12X BD-ROM 4MB Cache SATA 15X Internal Blu-ray Burner BDR-208DBK" Updated to lastest firmware in 2014. The max burn speed of these discs is 6x. So I manually put in 6x just to make sure.
Pros: Lasted almost a full year in my macbook pro. Worked fine up till today.
Cons: Failed after almost a year. With no warning, it sounds fine but can't do anything with it.
Overall Review: Gave me no warnings at all. Just today I was using my laptop and got the spinning wheel of death. Tried to repair disk, nope. I was able to get some files off of it. Tried to reformat it, nope. No go.
